Patient/ihs (9000001)

This file is IHS’s primary patient data file. The NAME (.01) field of this file is a pointer to the VA’s patient file (#2). Fields in common between the two dictionaries actually exist only in the VA patient file and are referenced by the IHS patient file as computed fields. All other files containing patient data have backward pointers linking them to this file. The linkage is by patient name and the internal FileMan gener- ated number of the ancillary file is the same number used in this file. All applications developed for the RPMS which require patient data will point to this file.
